5/18/2018 - A Framework for Understanding Poverty
OPEN - Register

Sign in begins at 8 a.m.; the workshop is from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. How does poverty impact learning, work habits, or decision making? The reality of being poor brings out a survival mentality and turns attention away from opportunities taken for granted by everyone else. If you work with people in poverty, understanding of how different their world is from yours will be invaluable. In an educational setting, economic class differences create conflict and challenges for both teachers and students alike. Designed for educators at all levels, but helpful to counselors, administrators, and support staff, this seminar provides practical, real-world support and guidance for overcoming barriers and helping others succeed.
NOTE: This training does NOT meet the ESE 20 point requirement.
